The Iceberg Dress is a slinky long sleeved dress designed for knit fabrics. Striking and comfortable at the same time – this is an extremely quick sew, especially if you have an overlocker/serger – but don’t be put off if you don’t have one. It’s the perfect base for hacking to your hearts content - check out the links below for some inspiration.
The fit is snug at the bust and hips with a bit a ease at the waist.
The pattern is drafted as a maxi dress to sit to just above ankle length. It’s easy to chop to mid‑calf, knee or mini as desired. You could also shorten the sleeves to elbow or cap, or omit them entirely. Deepen the neckband, alter the neckline, add frills or ruffles – the possibilities are endless.
